Scientists ran studies on humans to see if people had pheromones and if it had anything to do with how we pick our partners. A study began with 29 women. The researchers had nine of the women rub their under armpits with a cloth to gather sweat samples. Then for two months, half of the women sniffed the sweat of the women who were in the early stages of their menstrual cycle (pre-ovulation) and the other ten women sniffed the sweat samples of the women who were currently in the stage of ovulation. None of the women detected any odors, but changes in their own menstrual cycle did occur. Some of the women who were using the samples from the women who were in the pre-ovulation stage noticed their menstrual cycle was shortened by 1.7 days a month. Some of the other women who were using the samples of the women who were in the ovulation stage, noticed that their menstrual cycles were lengthened by 1.4 days a month. Women have claimed that when working together with another woman caused their cycles to synchronize.
